So, why is that I'm knitting a lovely pattern and the directions say to knit the Moss Stitch for 4 rows... and then I read the stitch-by-stich instructions for the Moss Stitch only to discover that it's really a Seed Stitch in my mind. Is this an English vs American definition?
In my mind, the Seed Stitch has always been a K1, P1 pattern over an odd number of stitches (repeat of 2+1) (You would K that last stitch). You would repeat this pattern every row. Or, as some people like to say, knit the purls and purl the knits
Moss Stitch, on the other hand, was a K2, P2 pattern. On the wrong side, you would then knit the stitches as they present themselves. On the 3rd row, you would alternate and Knit the Purls and Purl the Knits for a P2, K2 pattern On the 4th row you would knit the stitches as they present themselves. This would give you 2x2 block pattern.
What about you? How do you interpret Moss Stitch vs Seed Stitch?
